Re: “Face to face with Spokane's CIA torture architect

Bruce Jessen is prosecutable under US and international law, whether he is an honest, nice and giving human being. It doesn't matter whether or not he is a US citizen, a father of a few children who attended District 81 schools, a psychologist, a member of the US Air Force, a CIA contratista, and an accomplice in torturer, all of which he is. He is prosecutable under US and international law.

And unlike this reporter, Bruce Jessen is a coward, hiding behind CIA secrecy agreements. I challenge Bruce Jessen to come forward and openly describe the role he, James Mitchell, Roger Aldrich and Randall Spivey played in the US crimes during the bloody US Iraq and Afghan fiascos.

(Spivey, former policy chief for SERE's parent organization JPRA, still runs CIA/DOD front organizations - including Center for Personal Protection and Security - out of the American Legion Building at Washington and Riverside in Spokane. Dial Mitchell Jessen Associates' former phone number and you will reach Spivey's operation @ 509-468-4128).

Yeah, a really nice guy who creates and believes in torture all while bilking the public for millions. The guy is evil.

Re: “Face to face with Spokane's CIA torture architect

Jacob Jones, I don't know if you received permission to take a photo of the home. Having been there myself, I'm pretty sure you were standing on private property when you took a photo of the house. That's considered trespassing if you took a photo on private property without permission. By the way, I know Bruce, and he's a very honest, giving, and nice man.

Re: “Ferguson: Calm down... for what?

We are not ruled by mob rule. Mob rules says we can hang anyone we want, regardless of what the truth may be. That is vigilante justice. So what you are telling me is that a Grand Jury found no fault with the officer's conduct, but you want to hang him anyway as some sort of vengeance for the actions of a street thug who had just robbed a store? Give me a break, people. That officer had the right to protect himself and he did. We have video confirming he robbed a store and physically assaulted the store owner. He reached for the officer's gun and the officer shot him. What is so difficult for some of you to understand? Put yourselves in the shoes of that officer and tell me what you would have done differently.

Re: “Fracking Idaho

Well, I just moved into a new home and right after our move-in a gas and oil rep showed up and stated that they are drilling in the area and would like my permission to take my minerals and we will be compensated. Wait so you will contaminate my well and risk my childrens health to drill? He says it is going to happen regardless and that if we don't sign in order to receive payments, they still proceed and the state just gets the money instead. We have no interest is signing and only a couple of our neighbors agree with us, so what steps can we take to fight this? We are next to a river, on a well, and a nice natural habitat. Apparently this has been in the works over the last year and we just happened to move in late in the game so we haven't had any say until this point.

Re: “Money Men

In regard to the story, "Turned Away", it sounds as though there may have been an unlawful denial of housing under the Fair Housing Act based on the consumers' disabilities. Bonner County should have engaged in an interactive discussion with Mr. Boudousquie to determine if there was a way to accommodate the housing need of the persons with disabilities as well as the community needs. I hope that the County will do all that it can to meet the housing needs of persons with disabilities in their community and in Idaho.

Best,

Re: “Game Changer

Chesney was a complete a-hole to his staff. Trust me, I know. But you are correct in your assessment of Jan.

Re: “Game Changer

Jan simply doesn't belong there. She is arrogant, has no respect for her employees, makes too many assumptions about people, and doesn't have the background knowledge to be overseeing the departments. She doesn't deserve the credit for the changes that have been made - other than her willingness to fire people. Those changes were made by other staff from Verner's administration. She isn't a team builder or a good collaborator - her arrogance and lack of respect for others prevents it. Chesney was fired because he's not an a-hole to his staff. If you look at it closely, she's a lot like the mayor. No one enjoys working for either one of them and neither will tolerate anyone who doesn't agree with them. The only reason they want to be challenged is so they know who to fire.

Re: “Game Changer

Yes Jan Quintrall's hiring and firing practices in Spokane have been legendary for a very long time.

Re: “Sorry, Senator Risch

Al Nashiri was the mastermind of the terrorist attack in 2000 on the U.S.S. Cole in which 17 U.S. sailors were killed and 39 were injured. Until he was captured in Dubai in 2002, he was the head of Al-Qaeda operations in the Persian Gulf and the Gulf States. Knowing that he killed and/or maimed 56 American sailors in one attack, and probably caused the deaths of other innocents during his terrorist career, are readers really supposed to "shiver in disgust" because of the way he was interrogated? Are the readers allowed to shiver in disgust about what he did, too? As between his interrogation and his actions, which is more disgusting?

Re: “Silent Night on the Western Front

The show is amazing. My wife, daughter, her friend and myself had the pleasure of seeing it the day after Thanksgiving. It's no mystery why they shows are sold out -- the performances by all eleven ensemble members is spot on. It's emotionally moving, and thought provoking.
I would love to see it again at The Bing, but I'm not sure I could handle the intensity of it again. Next year, yes. By then I will be ready again. It's that powerful.
If you haven't seen it -- this Christmas Eve is the 100th anniversary to the DAY that the truce started and the story in the show takes place. Set your plans aside and go.

Re: “Game Changer

While Jan is far from innocent in how she manages people and handles things, she is correct in her judgments about how Chesney managed his department. He lacked the ability to communicate effectively with his staff, garnered little respect, and made many promises that his staff simply could not deliver on without breaking the law. The staff in that department is AMAZING and the cultural shift that many have seen was started before Chesney arrived. It was started by proactive STAFF who wanted to make things better.
